In the aftermath of his team's deflating 124-114 overtime loss on Thursday, the veteran guard had initially said that he was aware the score was tied. "Pretty sure the way we handled things previous year, kind of stay consistent with that". One in particular, a photo of Smith's teammate LeBron James apparently gesturing at him in horror, continued to churn out new captions all weekend.
LeBron James finished with a triple-double, totaling 33 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists.
James also supported NFL players who choose to kneel during the pre-game playing of the United States national anthem.
But it was Curry's circus layup with 2:58 remaining, followed by a 3-pointer on the ensuing possession, that gave Golden State the lead back for good - and set the stage for Durant to hit a devastating deep 3 that all but ended Cleveland's season for the second year in a row. "Excited about the opportunity that presents itself tomorrow".
"This is a pride game for the Cavaliers", he said. "That's my obligation, and I need to continue to do that, which I will". So I don't feel good about it. "When you have great basketball players but also that can also think the game and be very cerebral about the game, that's what adds the level of stress, because you know that you can never, ever relax", James said.
He ducked under McGee, fired the ball off the backboard, caught the rebound and dunked while every kid on the planet said, "Oh, yeah I could do that ... with a trampoline". But it's an eye.
The statement said the players refused to go because of Trump's insistence they stand for the national anthem, but several Eagles players have said that was not the case.
First lady to hang back on Trump's Camp David weekend
Her prolonged absence has many wondering whether or not we're being given the whole story and concerned about her well-being. The first lady returned to Twitter in an effort to quiet those conspiracy rumours about where she's been.
"There is nothing you can do". I think that's important. "I'll just have to naturally, organically let heal".
That sarcastic support continued all game long, with Smith getting serenaded with chants of "M-V-P!"
"By the way, I thought you guys were much better today", Kerr said, which elicited laughter across the room.
"The shot clock was running down, I was pretty far out, I just wanted to get a look", Durant said.
James was his typical brilliant self but was unable to match the 51-point scoring he had in the opener as the Warriors made a stronger effort to pick him up quicker to make him work for everything. He trash-talked Drake in the conference semifinals, was mocked by Draymond Green during Game 1 of the Finals, and, most recently, Steph Curry seemed irked by the fact that Perkins' legs got in his way after a shot in Game 2. "It started with the first game of the IN series".
Smith's struggles, however, continued into Game 2, as he scored just 5 points on 2-of-9 shooting in Cleveland's Game 2 loss. Thompson, who would return to finish with 24 points in Game One, was seen limping during the Warriors' practice session on Saturday.
